How can we overlook Jerry's outstanding pedal steel guitar work on CSN&Y's "Teach Your Children"?. The story is that Jerry agreed to play on the track in exchange for some harmony lessons as the Dead were recording Workingman's Dead and American Beauty around this time.

Not to pick nits, BUT Crosby says obliquely in "Anthem to Beauty" flick that this story (singing lessons) is unfounded (I had heard it too).

The contribution of Jerry, nonetheless, is amazing.

I bet there was a trade of other sorts going on between Crosby and Garcia...one thing's for sure, you can bet your last dollar they were s-t-o-n-e-d.

funny you should say that. Check out the " dope rap" from the PERRO tapes. You can hear Garcia and Crosby and others discussing Jerry going to score a pound and who's car to take ect. Jerry definately wanted to cap how much HE was going to score ( bust factor ) and Crosby was making the case for how much they needed based on how much they already had smoked.

I wasn't overlooking that gem of a performance, but in posting I am hoping to find instances when members of the Dead appeared en masse on another artist's recording.
